Previously listed in a rebound copy, listed again here for completeness sake with the original covers displayed. With all the illustrations, superbly executed (no pun), by Herric:- (Chéri Hérouard)
Chéri Hérouard (1881-1961) was a French artist and illustrator of numerous erotica and spanking novels. He used the pseudonym Herric when he illustrated spanking novels for various French publishing houses, such as Jean Fort’s Collection des Orties Blanches. And as evidenced by these titles also, Editions Prima.
Yet another accidental off shoot of my collecting activity, I found one of these titles and then set out to locate others, they are rather beautiful things and despite the subject matter, which even some erotic bibliophiles disapprove of, most were not prosecuted at time of publication and only really became the subject of censorship when reprinted , mainly in the 1950’s
Matée par le fouet: Jean Martinet, Éditions Prima, 1930. Cover and 12 full page engraved plates by Herric. 252 pages. Printed by Imprimerie Tessier, Romainville 32 Rue de Paris (ND) 1930?.(20 x 13.5 cm)
